G-8 leaders call for Syria Peace Talks in Geneva
The G8 leaders backed calls for Syrian peace talks in Geneva in their meet in Northern Ireland.
The G8 leaders in their meet at Lough Erne in Northern Ireland on 18 June 2013 backed calls for Syrian peace talks that will be held in Geneva. At the end of the two day summit, the leaders of G8 nations agreed on the seven point document and released a joint statement on Syria.
The document states that the transition Government will be formed with mutual consent and it stresses on the negotiated and peaceful end of the conflict that will produce a government under the top leadership inspired by public confidence.
The G8 leaders also agreed on providing new fund of nearly 1.5 billion US dollar to help the people affected by the raging conflict. Future of the Syrian President Bashar al-Assad was not made clear in the released statement.
